I am a serial entrepreneur passionate about Akron and the local food scene. Stray Dog Mustard was a happy accident, created by chance in the kitchen! I am constantly innovating, fine tuning, and creating new and unique products. Our condiments are created using simple and delicious ingredients, handmade, high quality, the type of stuff that we like to eat.

Bring your little leprechauns out to Stray Dog Cafe on St. Patrick's Day for a crafty, slimy, shamROCKIN' time. We'll be painting lucky rocks and learning to make leprechaun snot *ew sorry lol* (no borax recipe). Stray Dog will have some delicious lunch specials and I may even break out the face paint.

FYI... Akron decided to hold the St. Pat's Parade on the 10th (weird) so parking on the 17th won't be an issue. Plus parking downtown is free on weekends. Hope to see you there, but seating is limited! Grab your tickets fast :)
